Notes on the Area & Terrain

Getting there & Parking:

The last few miles of road, to the parking area and path, is a bit rough, we recommend driving in a vehicle with a higher clearance. If you do not have access to such a vehicle, message kateh@glazerscamera.com to arrange a ride those last few miles.

From the Parking area there is a 1 mile, moderate hike, each direction.

There are toilets near the viewpoint, however there is no running water.

Glazer’s will provide a parking pass, bottled water and some light snacks. We suggest bringing water or other snacks if you have any special needs.




ABOUT JACK FUSCO

Jack Fusco is a landscape-astrophotographer / timelapser based out of San Diego, California. What began as a way purely to document his travels as a touring musician, photography has become his main form of creative expression.

On his often-sleepless journey, he strives to share the wonder of the night sky with as many people as possible. Whether chasing the Milky Way along coast lines or capturing the Northern lights in unforgiving remote locations you’re sure to find him coffee in hand, smiling up at the stars.

Many of Jack’s images are often planned days, weeks, or even months in advance while waiting for weather and celestial objects to align. The resulting work shows a true and complete dedication to his craft.

His work has been featured by National Geographic, LA Times, NASA APOD, BBC, Forbes and many more.
